About Ruby Port

About Ruby Port
Ruby port is a traditional fortified wine from Portugal that is the basic, most inexpensive expression of Oporto approved by the Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e Porto, which regulates the production and the use of the term Port or Oporto. Ruby ports are of course red and sweet, around 20% alcohol by volume, and are best enjoyed after dinner, in cocktails like a Flip, or with blue cheeses.
